Here we have it – the new “Vampiric Black Metal” Masterpiece from Black Funeral. Two years after “Ankou and the Death Fire” Micheal W. Ford and his Ambient Black Metal band Black Funeral released their new four track EP. The first three songs are pure Black Metal songs which sound more like “Vampire – Throne of the Beast” and “Empire of Blood” than “Ankou and the Death Fire” – only the sound is warmer like on the 2016 album. The fourth song is a solid Ambient piece that completes the EP.
With “The dust and darkness” Black Funeral take a few steps backwards, but not in a negative way. This EP will satisfy every Black Funeral fan. The only negative point is that the EP is only a 4 track EP and after 15 min it is all over. When this is the way Black Funeral has chosen for the future than in my opinion it is the right way.
